winding process

Progress on Identity Tapestry #8 (a participatory art installation).

It’s not just dyeing hundreds of individual colors (right pile).  It’s carefully tying every one to a stone and inconspicuously securing it with fabric glue (what is laid out on one chair and draped over the other).  It is taking all those attached stones and spending hours (hopefully with friends) winding them around each stone.

The next part involves threading them through the basket-form and securing them.

Yes, this is a labor-intensive piece, but it’s worth it.

I fly off on the 13th to install Iteration #8 of Identity Tapestry at Southern Vermont College.  The first permanent installation of the series.
